committee for mitt romney in his presidential bid. and what your sources are telling you is what in terms of if we reach a deal. >> i've talked to paul ryan, scott brown and a few of the other republicans and i do think that there is a deal there, and it looks like the threshold number on the taxes will be about $500,000, and so, there's a little bit of a grudge going on right now. one theory is, they allow it to go over the cliff, taxes go up for everybody, the sequestration happens and then they go out and say, well, we lowered your taxes from where the cliff was and we restored cuts from where the se question trags was. that seems to be what's going on now as it relates to the game theory, which i think is sort of sad and an indictment of both political parties, in terms of letting us be in the position that we're in right now. but what it means for investors is, there will be a lot of money on the sidelines until we get this resolved. >> right. all right, john, we're going to let you go now. john harwood with the latest. we have the markets very uncertain. what do you make of today's
